Third wine we tasted after our tour at Champagne Billecart-Salmon. Our tour guide was excellent and very knowledgeable about the domains history and all the wines. Light golden yellow and lively. A touch sweet on the nose with marzipan and nutty notes. Medium plus acidity (6.5/10) and medium bodied. Oak definitely felt on the palate with some nutty and cream elements. Some citrus fruits too in the long finish. Drink till 2023. This bottling was started in 2012 and is made up of equal parts Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunièr. 100% of the fruit is vinified in barrel with on 7 grams of sugar. Aged for 7 years on the lees.

Great tart apple, super bright and fun. Fairly light with an incredible "growing" carbonation.

The cuvée has some oak toast oaky notes hazelnut and rich brioche notes to the tree and citrus fruit with notes of coco. A bit aggressive with oak and a bit more effervescence but has balance despite the weight and distinct oak toasty. A heavy style with a long finish. Excellent

The Sous is oak fermented and then put into bottle. It must be neutral as you don't sense the oak It's full bodied with micro fizz. Poached pear, lemon parfait, citrus, lightly bruised red apple, silvered almond, butter, brioche, fig, steel core, nice subtle acidity with a round finish of cream soda/ginger ale. It's nice but doesn't fall deeply into my champagne wheel house.

Wanted to high five someone from Billecart-Salmon after tasting this. Rich, but balanced, and the oak just bolsters the natural richness of the wine.

Absolute favourite of mine - premium bubbles with oak treatment from burgundy barrels - 1/2 Selosse at 1/4 the price - this is good!
